Dear future RBG participants,
Welcome to Rome Business Game 2020.
It is with great honour that as Director of this fifth edition, I welcome you to the 2.0 evolution of our global, leading academic experience, specifically designed for students and graduates in the economic and business field.
Rome Business Game originated from the family of RomeMUN, one of the biggest and most prestigious MUN simulations in Europe. Since its foundation in 2010, the competition greeted thousands of students from 61 countries to the "Eternal City" of Rome.
We decided to create Rome Business Game in light of the critical turning point experienced from an economic perspective by our society that marked the aftermath of 2008. Back then, companies had to review their strategies, to think out of the box, yet not all of them survived this phase. Many still struggle. A few succeeded in unprecedented ways.
Such uncertain times call for a dynamic generation of talented, ingenious managers and business professionals. Hence, we strive to empower business and economics students with the opportunity to face real-life managerial cases, presented by world-class companies in a realistic business environment.
For its 2020 edition, we redesigned Rome Business Game from the ground up. A completely reinvented and improved simulation model - five business divisions, one global and five specific objectives, a mentoring program, and a more interactive, cross-functional structure.
Never so challenging. Never so engaging. Our best RBG ever.
We are more confident than ever, Rome Business Game will be an experience to be remembered for a lifetime. A unique occasion not only to broaden your academic and professional horizons but also for a profound personal enrichment. Meet new friends, practice your English, improve your soft skills.
Being a good manager, indeed, does not simply revolve around possessing technical and theoretical capabilities; it requires an outstanding mastery of transversal abilities as well: business awareness, emotional intelligence, teamwork, critical thinking, and negotiation, among a few.
Being a leader, rather than remaining a boss.
We look forward to meeting all of you. A diverse, dynamic audience of future professionals, managers, and leaders, all driven by the common will to be challenged, to collaborate, to share your knowledge and to compete fairly.
Will you take up our challenge?
Let the games begin.
Luca M. Giraldin von Lahnstein
Director, Rome Business Game 2020
By Sara De Mola e Lily Rizzoli
Nii Morton: Nii is a 16-year-old from Guinea, Africa. He is the Chief Executive Officer and founder of his company, Vermo Reality, which promotes the use of virtual reality technology in the classrooms of Guinea. Vermo aims to help students recall what they learned in class, using virtual reality to make it easier for them to visualise this material.
Visual (spatial) learning is a learning style in which students are able to understand and retain information if they digest it visually rather than traditionally. Students who learn visually are more successful creatively and have higher special senses. According to Forbes, 65% of learners in the world identify as visual learners. Visual learners can struggle retaining information that they learn by reading textbooks or listening to lectures. The use of videos, drawings, or in this case, virtual reality, can be a turning point for visual students.
Sara Ferasat: Sara is a 28-year-old from Iran. She has earned her Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Design in Tehran. She owns and runs her own brand, Tiida, where she designs clothing. She would like to internationalise her brand by improving her international connections and networking.
Women’s fashion in Iran has many different limitations. Women must cover their heads/hair, and in the past, women were expected to wear shapeless clothing and dress in drab colours. The latest trend for women in Iran is to use more colours in their wardrobe, to wear patterned hijabs, and wear more fitted clothing.
These two impressive and completely culturally diverse individuals can both be found at the Rome Business Game, one of the programmes under the International Careers Festival which is in its 10th year. Societal issues are presented to the participants of the programme. They must then come up with solutions to these conflicts. Dr. Luca Marco Giraldin von Lahnstein, who has a Master’s Degree in Marketing Management from EMLYON, has been the Director of the Business Game since 2014 and presented it during the Opening Ceremony. “This workshop is different from all the other simulations,” he said, “because there is not a single solution to the problem we give. We want to promote a 360° view of it [the problem.]”
Daniela Conte spoke to Team 4 reporters on the 10th anniversary of the festival and the Business Game specifically. Conte highlighted the importance of the intercultural background of the participants in the simulation. “If you want to work in an international company in the future, maybe you’re working with ten different nationalities, so you have to be very open minded.” Conte also described the ever growing nature of the festival and reminisced on the past ten years. “We started with just a small group of 200 people most of them were Italians.” Conte looks forward to this year’s festival.

Giovani nel Mondo has interviewed the protagonists of the 10th edition of the International Careers Festival. Do you want to know their experience? Read the article and get to know them!
This year, the International Careers Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary, confirming a successful record of this international event which allows young students from all over the world to challenge themselves and to live a unique experience in the charming Italian city of Rome. Such a remarkable success would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and the commitment of the dynamic youth that work behind the scene of the ICF. We have met some of the key figures that contribute to the realization of the four projects of the Festival: the RomeMUN, the Press Game, the Business Game and the International Careers Course. Here are their stories and their advice for a successful international career.
Luca Marco Giraldin von Lahnstein –Business Game Director, Executive Committee
Successful entrepreneur in the Food and Luxury sector and with professional experience in marketing, managerial and strategic consulting, Luca Marco is the creator and director of the Business Game, as well as a member of the Executive Committee of the International Careers Festival. His collaboration with GnM began in 2011 and since then his contribution has become more and more concrete, coming to the design of the Business Game that this year will see its third edition. Luca in fact wanted to bring his experience within the festival to help young people interested in following a professional path in the business area to understand how "to have the freedom to choose their own future, to realize it according to their ambitions, with courage, dedication and receiving adequate gratifications. This is success" What is the reason for including the Business Game within the Festival? Because in an increasingly international and competitive reality, young people cannot limit themselves to academic knowledge but need to develop soft skills, better if in an association like the GnM. Today Luca continues his entrepreneurial adventure thanks to a new challenge in the United States with the launch of the "Patavini" brand, a food boutique and a laboratory for the production of fresh pasta in the heart of New York. The secret that made his initiative competitive? An in-depth analysis of the American market in the field of food production and distribution, together with a correct positioning in the distribution channels and a constant tension towards excellence. If you want to acquire these competences, the Business Game is the right opportunity for you, apply here!
Jorge Alejandro González Galicia - Deputy Director
Jorge is a young professional of Mexican-Guatemalan origins who has participated for many years at the International Careers Festival and this year will play the role of Deputy Director. Excellent communicator, his biggest dream is to give voice to his ideas to create a positive impact in society. The reason that motivated Jorge to join the GnM team is "the opportunity that represents an organization like GnM: connecting young people through the power of dialogue and diplomacy". Over the years, GnM has allowed him to get in touch with thousands of people from all over the world who, like him, are determined to overcome contemporary global challenges. Jorge told to us that he traveled a lot more with his new international friends than he ever did with his fellow students or his colleagues, "it's funny because you would never imagine that someone living more than 100 kilometers away from you can share so much with you, and in so many different ways ". Do you share his same aspirations? Take part to the 10th edition of the Festival, apply here!
Alina Barsamyan - Under Secretary General RomeMUN
Alina Barsamyan is a girl of Armenian origin who has lived abroad since the age of 7 and this year will serve as Under Secretary General of RomeMUN. Student of International Relations at King's College London, as Jorge also Alina has participated in many editions of the Festival and she looks forward to seeing the tenth edition that already promises to be "biggest and better than ever". Alina told us that this year the MUN Secretariat has worked hard to include new committees and controversial topics "We hope to ensure that the delegates collect the best possible memories from this anniversary edition and keep returning as we have in the past", she added. The strength of the RomeMUN Secretariat is the multiculturalism that contributes to making the Festival truly international. "In an era of rapid globalization, we must take into account how extremely interconnected we are, irrespective of global disposition.” This is why a successful MUN must celebrate diversity in all its forms and make use of differences to educate on new cultures, traditions and lifestyles. Do you want to join this multicultural team? Apply here!
Shanthi Kodituwakku - Press Game Program Director
Multiculturalism is also the word that best describes Shanthi, the Press Game Program Director. Shanti has mixed Italian-Sri Lankan origin but she has always felt to belong to the whole world rather than to a single culture. Before arriving in Messina, where she works for a web radio, Shanthi has traveled to England, Italy, India, Sri Lanka and Mexico, living in contact with different cultures. From this experience Shanthi realized that she wanted to give voice to what she had seen. For this reason, she decided to study journalism and join the GnM team choosing the path offered by the Press Game. "Following a course of study based on journalism and communication, the Press Game was immediately the project that I felt most suitable for me," Shanthi told us. The fundamental value of the Festival, according to Shanthi, is to fill the gap existing in Italy between universities and the professional world: "Universities should act as a bridge bringing young people to the world of work, but if this is true for a few universities, it remains a utopia for others ". In a globalized world, it would be impossible to imagine life without information... or the Festival without the Press Game! Do you agree? Then apply now and bring your voice to the ICF!
Ebenezer Essilfie-Nyame - Scientific Committee
Ebenezer is a young professional who works with the FAO Regional Office for Africa and is a member of the Festival's scientific committee. According to his experience, to understand what is your best way within the vast world of international careers it is important to follow your passions, specialize in a field and dedicate your with commitment to refine your own skills. The International Careers Festival is the best platform to explore different career paths in a multicultural environment. "Through the ICF, participants are taught fundamentals of diplomacy, public speaking, marketing, leadership, and negotiation. Additionally, through the mentoring from highly accomplished individuals and diplomats, participants are not only able to network with over 100 different nationalities, they also have the opportunity to learn from highly experienced experts in the field of international relations". Ebenezer also told us about the importance of the Festival for young people coming from African countries, an internationally reputable event that offers young talents from its continent the opportunity to be known and to cultivate the fundamental values of the Festival for those who could be leaders of African institutions in the next few years.

The international careers festival has started! And what is better than starting with the Italian National Anthem? The Italian “Banda nazionale garibaldina” delights us with some traditional songs. After this beautiful beginning the Ceremony is directed by Luca Marco Giraldin von Lanhstein, the director of the business game.
Fabio Bisogni (Delegate for international relations of UNINT university) talks about the importance that UNINT pays to languages: “by choosing a language you are actually choosing a door”; a door that leads you to a different culture with its own traditions.
In addition, Fabio also emphasizes that the reason of this festival is to give students answers, to shape their professional journey and to create bridges between cultures and people.
After Marco’s speech is the turn of Mr Colombo from Tecnopolo that gives the participants his own experience. Tecnopolo said that “we have to create our own future”. Colombo uses a quote from Keynes to inspire the participants to challenge the past and make a concrete change.
Afterwards, Daniela Conte (Executive Director of the festival) explains the reason behind the creation of the Rome International Careers Festival. It was born to help students to understand that an international career is not only a dream but is actually possible. Daniela lists some skills that are strongly recommended but the key word is: Practice! “You must challenge yourself and take your time to think about what you truly want.” She said. Daniela believes that the real reason for being here is to discover ourselves and to answer our questions.
The is time for programs directors to introduce their activities.
Luca Marco Giraldin von Lanhstein as the Director of the Business Game focuses his attention on the crisis which brought about a need for a new approach driven by people instead of profit.
Ebenezer Essilfie Nyame (Director of the Rome Model United Nation) says how “everyone is important and one of a kind and that everyone bring something to the table”; thereby, encouraging us to celebrate diversity and different opinions. Ebenezer is so passionate about the topic that tells the participant a story to better explain it.
Last but not least, for the Press Game, Eleonora Mantovani. She reminds us of the importance of journalism as the only keeper of the truth.
To sum up, each speaker really believes in the power of the younger generation. They believe the young have many beautiful ideas that needs to be realized and they see in the Rome Internationals Careers Festival the chance to give students the right instruments to do it.
